Every Mans Marriage Dec 10, 2008
This book is amazing it will give you a whole new outlook on marriage,and if you are struggling with yours i would strongly recomend it. This book s is a book that really uses God's word a lot. The author is constantly backing up what he says with scripture. Its a great book to give you a new outlook on how as men we should treat our spouses. And even if your not married this book is still an amazing read...
Good book for Christian men Mar 23, 2008
A good book for Christian men, perhaps for couples to read together. I felt that while most of the front chapters outlined and emphasized the need for men to "submit" for the sake of oneness in marriage, the latter chapter emphasized too much on oneness in sex. It became like we men are doing all these to achieve oneness in marriage so that we can have blissful sex. Also, the 2nd last chapter of the "letter to women" talked about men's need for sex again. Shouldn't Christian men have more than just sex in their minds?
I agree with some of the reviewers (especially that 1, 2-stars reviewers) that the book may have given a stereotypical view of women, ie, they are demure, submissive, "need men", etc. I can see why they are upset, but the authors are painting a picture of what God intended for men and women to be... ie, Men to love their women, and women submit to their men.
Read this even if you're not married Feb 13, 2008
I have currently been dating my girlfriend for over 4 months. Having made dating mistakes in the past i've made sure i've committed this relationship fully to God, making Him the center of everything. And it's been such a blessing and learning experience. I bought this book along with other books on relationships. I read this soon after i read "every man's battle" which i highly recommend as well (it expands on some of the things touched upon in Every Man's Marriage). This book drove home a lesson that God has been teaching me throughout my new relationship, which is to grow a servant's heart. Each woman wants one thing in life, and that is to be loved and know they are loved by their husband. How do they feel loved? By us consciously showing it through our actions.
For a guy, it makes total sense to just say "i love you" and expect our mates to know we mean it. I've learned time and time again that those words are not enough. It's up to the man to serve his wife and to submit all he is to making her know that she is loved and they are one. If she knows this, she will return her respect and submit to your leadership in the relationship. Romans 14:13-23 is the bedrock to this whole idea and this book. If we put a stumbling block in the way of our wives feeling at one with us, we are not acting in love. We are to love them as Christ loves the church, in essence, lay down our lives for them.
this book was great. and has lots of examples of other men's triumphs and failings we can all relate to. I highly recommend this book as a learning tool and a challenge to every man to live life devoted to God and our mates.
Definately a must for all marriages Jan 7, 2008
I bought this book for my husband, we had been doing a study on the book love and respect (which is also not to bad of a book), but wasn't seeming to get what we wanted from it, so, I bought this one, not quite knowing what to expect, but hoping that our marriage would be benefited from this book. I have been very surprized at the change that my marriage has been going through since my husband began this book, he is so much more loving and kind, we are growing very close, and I am very pleased as to the changes in him. I even bought this for another couple who is in our marriage class, and pray it will help them as much as it has helped us. This book is very down to earth and practical, (I have also read a few pages from it) and my husband enthusiastically shares what he learns also, and that is NOT his personality to do so. God bless the men who wrote this!
A FEW good thoughts. Dec 27, 2007
Why would a "Christian" author defend a man to look at women in bikinis? This aspect of the book is rotten. I am throwing mine in the garbage. If a man truly loves God, he will seek the mind of Christ and refuse to do something that he knows offends his wife!
